Bikini Babe

I know it's not Itsy Bitsy Teenie Weenie or even Yellow Polka Dot but I so wanted to use this sentiment lol....

Supplies: Stamps - CC Designs; Papertrey Ink / Designer Paper - Doodlebug / Tools - Martha Stewart Edge Punch / Other - Copic Sketch Markers


I'll be leaving the children with my parent's after pre-school today & heading for (my home from home) Bluewater Shopping Center for some retail therapy, I am in dire need of clothes that are neither pajamas or tracksuit bottoms lol x
